Cameron's first birthday
Cameron's 3rd birthday
Yesterday my first baby turned 9.
For the first half of the day I was a blubbering mess.
I cried taking him to school.
I cried thinking about this same day 9 years ago.
I called Mr. Shook at work crying. (Note to self, I don't think he's a fan of that.) Not that he cared I called crying, I think I made him feel a little teary as well. Not very global finance-ish. Mr. Shook talked me off of the ledge.
The thing I couldn't get over for most of the morning was...
HE IS HALFWAY TO 18!!!
HOW DID THAT HAPPEN??
These first 9 years have flown by and I know the next 9 will too.
Mr. Shook and I were so very blessed 9 years ago + 40 weeks when we were given the wonderful gift of our first child. Cameron was the easiest baby ever. EVER. He was a joy from his first breath. He is turning out to be a great kid, who loves his sisters, knows just how to get on their last nerve but is the best of friends with them as well. Cameron does well in school, tries his best and is learning responsibility.
Happy, happy #9, Cameron Michael Shook!!
